Atom Interferometry for detection of Gravity Waves-a

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Atom interferometers are more sensitive to inertial effects. This is because atoms in their inertial frame are ideal test masses for detection of gravity effects and gravity Waves. The internal and external degrees of freedom of atoms are used to amplify the gravity wave phase. This team proposes to design a Gravity Wave detector with atom interferometers that would be more sensitive - and less expensive to build - than LISA.
